Re: International Matches Discussion Thread
The favourites don't all go through, it never works like that. France and England have about an easy group as they could have wished for, Spain and Germany are a cut above the rest, so that leaves Italy and Holland, both with really tough groups. I'd go with those 2 to be knocked out.
I remember when we played France in Euro 2004, we took the lead, Beckham missed a penalty, then Zidane scored a free-kick right at the end, then I think it was Gerrard with the most woeful back pass resulted in a last minute Zidane penalty and France win. Though that was a much stronger French team.
